Please welcome Kim from Little Stories.
Kim is a a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. On her blog she shares a lot of insights on how to make your home and environment well equipped for young children. She shares tips on toy rotation, and book rotation. These tips are so helpful because it's always hard to know where to start with that stuff, right? She is also regular contributor over at Modern Kids Messy Parents. You should all read her latest MKMP contribution about how to Make your Halloween Costume count (and last) before the big night. Today, Kim shares with us a story from her daughter.
Hi! I'm Kim and I'm so excited to be here today. I love stories and I'm passionate about helping parents to hear more of their child's story, by talking all about the great early childhood things, like play, toys, interaction, and language development over at a blog called...Little Stories.
For our turn to Make It Up, I took the opportunity to preserve an amazing story my two year-old daughter shared with me a few months ago. I hope from the little book I've created you will be reminded of how truly awe-inspiring children can be and be encouraged to always keep your ears open to hear all of the great things they have to share.
"Where's me?" asks my daughter. "You weren't born yet. You weren't even in my tummy yet," I reply.
She pauses for a second then she says, "I was up flying around with my wings on..."
And you said, "All done flying now,"
"And Daddy picked me up."
I'd love to hear any special stories your child has shared and hope you enjoy getting to hear more of your child's story everyday.
Thanks so much for sharing this sweet little story with us Kim. And, what a fun idea to put it into a board book so that your daughter can look at it and read it over and over again. I'm sure she will continue to go back to that book for years to come, looking at it and reading it and asking her to remind you about the whole thing!
I'd love to say a Big Thanks to Kim and to everyone who joined me here these past two weeks and shared their stories and crafts for Make it Up! Now, it's your turn to share. Link up your Make it Up projects below. Remember, if you don't have a blog, post your picture either in the Buzzmills Flickr Group or in your own Flickr account, give us an idea of what your story is in the description and you can link up from there. The link up will stay open until Sunday night and then I will choose, at Random, a winner of the Show Me A Story: 40 Craft Projects and Activities to Spark Children’s Storytelling book on Monday along with a little wrap up.
I'm so excited to see what you have all been up to! I hope you were all as inspired by these past two weeks as I was!
